The Singapore University of Social Sciences is using predictive analytics to help its students learn better.
The university hopes to make use of student data to understand their behaviour and improve their performance.
SUSS’s Business Intelligence and Analytics Unit has analysed 8,826 students and 3,976 graduates, and gathered enough information to dish out advice backed by data to students.
SUSS tracks students’ performance and studying habits, like how many courses they take.
The system allows staff to tell if students are on track or at risk.
Singapore Institute of Technology also said it has plans to carry out predictive analytics, as part of efforts to make use of technology to improve students’ learning experiences.
